Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet.

Representative Text

1 Glory to Jesus who died on the tree,
Paid the great price that my soul might be free;
Now I can sing hallelujah to God,
Glory! he saves, he saves.

Glory! he saves, glory! he saves,
Saves a poor sinner like me;
Glory! he saves, glory! he saves,
Saves a poor sinner like me.

2 Once in my hear there was sin and despair,
Now the dear Saviour himself dwelleth there,
And from his presence comes peace to my soul,
Glory! he saves, he saves. [Refrain]

3 Come, then, ye weary, who long to be free,
Come to the Saviour, he waiteth for thee;
Then with the ransomed this song you can sing,
Glory! he saves, he saves. [Refrain]
